The rain has done wonders for the vegetable patch. The plants have grown much taller and I’ve got a broccoli sprouting. It’s so exciting I can tell you. This is the first time I’ve grown a broccoli, aren’t they wonderful!
Now all I need is for the others to sprout and this one to grow bigger than a mouthful.
Here’s the row of broccoli that are bursting with life.
The carrots to the left are doing pretty well too! I’ve not been that successful at growing carrots in the past so I’m keeping my expectations low.
I battled with the rain and wind to tie up the peas. What a dedicated Gardener I am. Stupid really, I should have done it before and when the wind started to pick up I thought they may go the same way as my cauliflower!
This is what happens when you want to get a nicer picture of the pea canes. Someone’s shadow gets in the way! Wonder who that might be?
But it’s not all rosy in the garden. Here’s the view down the valley when I turned around.
I think it looks mean and moody. It was in fact the first blue sky for a couple of days. Hopefully the southerly storm means we’ll have a few fine days. How do you fancy our chances for a warm Christmas?
